Quoted in email from dSP Recordings (12/24/05):
"At some point in 2001 I started to listen to BBC Radio 3(UK classical radio
station). I was first enamoured by its lack of commercials but as the months
passed, I began to frequently enjoy the music also. Having moved to France
in 2002, I became an avid listener to France Musique (again classical radio
station). Both these stations play music that I found to be a perfect
antidote to the rhythm heavy electronic music that I normally make.
Late 2004, after the birth of my 2nd child, I found myself with time to
spare pushing my young son around my home city of Montpellier. Being drawn
inevitably to the many fine 2nd hand record shops that are in the old town.
I began to buy classical cds, amassing a fair collection, chosen mainly by
virtue of costing less than €5. It seemed to be a logical step to then use
this music that I was enjoying so much as source material for my own work.
Thus, I spent evenings on headphones with my laptop working through the
sounds and making music purely for my own pleasure.
The unfinished sketches then took on a fuller form as I began to travel
again to play live gigs. Often on the return train home I would work on
theses tracks, again finding them a perfect antidote to club sounds of the
previous night, with a tired head and just looking out of the window and
listening. I never really intended to release this music, more just to enjoy
for my family, friends and myself. But with time I feel now that I would
like to share this work with others."
